stox. you are a newbie here and i won't waste much time on this and keep it simple.
We have been on this mb for a while now, and seen shorts like you come and go.
what you fail to understand is these moves make everyone money, whether we are trimming or adding depending on the action. But we all hold a core position, since the days of aamrq/lcc. the extra we play around with, you probably will never make (certainly not with the trades you made lately). you are just entertainment for us, with your "maneuvers" and poker references. since you like poker so much, here is one from me to you.....if you are at the table and don't see a sucker, fish, whatever...then buddy it's you!
Us longs are in a happy place, for a while now. AAL has been the gift that keeps on giving.
you said it. i wish i was able to pay attention earlier today when AAL hit 50 almost, great time to buy and many did as it quickly rebounded. Am guessing that was from the oil tanker news?? If it was, what a nonsense drop and easy pickup. Nice to see it hold a 5 handle.
was wondering because i still haven't had time to go over the cc. did they mention anything about a divy increase? i know DAL increased theirs to .09 if i remember right.
easy there keyboard warrior. leave my kid out of this.
ok there buddy. your "maneuvers" are weak bluffs that will get called at the table and margin called here. Your math doesn't even add up on your "maneuver" of basic averaging. not wasting anymore time with you.
hey unc...didn't see your question until now. Actually nobody was around when it happened. I called my parents when her water broke, and they live 10 minutes away. The baby came so fast they didn't make it to the house until after i caught him already.
I began to call 911 when i saw the baby crowning, which was 5-7 minutes after her water broke. I thought we had time to make it to a hospital because that's what they show on tv lol (i also read about it, so not just tv). I was still on the phone, holding it with my shoulder against my ear, when the baby came out into my arms. the EMT's showed up like 5-7 minutes after he came out, and my parents came like 3-4 minutes after the EMT's. All happened very fast as you can tell from reading. We then drove to the hospital in the emt truck with my wife holding the baby.
Her water broke at 1:30am, and i was holding him by 1:45am
amazing how your friend had it twice like that! i would be screaming like "not again". It is quite scary in the moment, but it is an amazing feeling to catch your own baby. what an experience! He got blessed with it twice lol. The coolest thing is we just received the baby's birth certificate, and it has me listed twice, one as the father and the other as the "attendant", where they normally put the doctor or gyno who delivered it. But there i am twice , in case the little guy doesn't believe us wen he grows up lol.
starts trading april 30th.
anyone have any thoughts? would have been nice to own this time last year up to now...not so sure it's a good time for it. will do more DD once it begins trading.
i play poker.
while anyone who plays knows anything is possible, a good player would take more things into account. you have acted out of position and put yourself as an underdog. you are speaking about breaking even like its a good thing. If you are as smart as you think, you would have timed your shorts better.
now that's twice (that i counted, and i am not on here much lately) that you whiffed on AAL.
Major whiff on HA!
Panicked and sold out of UAL, when by holding your position would be green.
So basically if someone did the opposite of your moves, they would have done well. How are you still talking? Next week is next week and i will be on new trades by then, while you keep your fingers crossed hoping to get your money back.
and btw, how do you know for sure you will get it back, seems like your crystal ball could use some windex.
i have been busy lately, but have managed to catch a couple of his posts. He is definitely good for a laugh. How he can he talk smack on here after today, arguing how he is still happy with things beats me. Just someone who doesn't know when to quit.
manuver?? averaging down is a "maneuver" now? good luck not getting margin called. Only reason am rooting for you to lose is because it means i and the other longs here win, other than that i feel sorry for you. You stated your position and why, and i respect that even though i do not agree.
you got lucky when after shorting at 47 and watching it head up to here, and then seeing it come back down giving you a chance to get out and you still held that short? i guess you really earned this loss.
not a crazy beat, but finally got the tempered expectations. thanks for the revision from 1.81 to 1.71
i thought another couple cents at least but whatever, i will take it.
jump on newbies, there is still room.
better than being the yhoo mb loser that has nothing to add. this is going on how long now mongo? sad person. at least stoxx has his motives
unfortunately those dead fish do affect the price action when they lower or raise their pt, other than that not really useful at all. we all have our own thoughts and targets. will see what happens next week with the rest of them and the earnings, and am sure we will hear from a dead fish head or 2 by then as well. did Baker say anything yet? havbe to wait until i get home to go over cc
am curious to see what swiss cheese credit does. they have the lowest pt, would be a major lift if they upped it.
Holding JBLU into er because it turns long term gain on may 2nd, have VA as well but not sure whether to keep til next week. thoughts?
